Defense Verdict


Partner Mark Connely recently obtained a defense verdict in a significant medical malpractice case, where the plaintiff had demanded $1 million for the loss of a newborn’s testicles after surgery. In the Santa Barbara Superior Court case of Weidman v. Keshan, Mr. Connely obtained a defense verdict against claims that the physician’s negligence in operating on a newborn’s intestinal blockage resulted in loss of the baby’s testicles. Mr. Connely established that the physician, a highly qualified pediatric surgeon, met the standard of care in operating on the baby.
